What is little Magpie?

This is Magpie.  She's very much loved by her owners, Jennifer and Tony.  She was rescued from a shelter in Venice, California.  At the shelter, they had her listed as a boxer mix.

Does she look like a Boxer mix to you?

Her owners aren't sure what breeds she is.  All they know is that Magpie is the BEST dog ever. 

She weighs about 25 pounds, much smaller than a Boxer.  But she does have some Boxer traits, especially when she's playing.

Any ideas yet?  Maybe a few more pictures will help.

Tony describes her as the "most loving, playful dog" he has ever met. 

She's always in a great mood and loves to be the center of attention.

She plays differently with Tony than she does with Jenn.  With Tony, she will wrestle and the sounds that she makes are frightening to anyone who doesn't know her.  With Jenn, Magpie is much more gentle.
While they don't know just yet what breeds little Magpie is, Tony and Jennifer have a few ideas.
They are going to have DNA testing done!  So we get to make our guesses now and find out how close we were when the results come in.

Here's the fun part - Paws  and Learn will give a $25 gift card to the person who has the most accurate guess!  $25 to PetCo or PetSmart - you can't beat that!  Plus, it's fun trying to figure out what breeds might be lurking in her DNA!

What do you think?  Do you see Boxer?  What breed or breeds do you see?
